Mesabi Trust was formed according to an Agreement of Trust dated July 18, 1961. The Trust was organized under the laws of the State of New York. It is a royalty trust organized to derive income from an iron mine. Under various agreements the mine is operated by Northshore Mining Company, a subsidiary of Cleveland-Cliffs Inc. Northshore pays royalties to the Trust mainly based on the selling price of pellets shipped from Northshore's pellet plant at Silver Bay, Minnesota, on Lake Superior approximately 45 miles from the mine, plus a smaller royalty based on tons of ore extracted at the mine. The Trust has a term continuing 21 years after the death of the last survivor of 25 individuals living at the inception of the Trust.
